Students encouraged to updated address to receive EAC Debit Card

THATCHER, AZ—Beginning in November 2009, Eastern Arizona College will be partnering with Higher One, a financial services company focused solely on higher education to bring a new method for receiving your refunds to all EAC students--the EAC Debit Card. Please do not throw away this important card since it is your ticket to a faster refund.

Simply put, your new EAC Debit Card is designed to provide you with increased choice when it comes to receiving your financial aid or school refunds—including the preferred "Easy Refund" method. Easy Refund is by far the fastest and easiest way to gain access to your refund money--literally the same day EAC releases it.

Please activate your card as soon as you receive it. Remember, even if you are not currently expecting a refund from Eastern Arizona College, we may have a refund for you in the future.

If you’re not sure that we have your current mailing address, please take a moment to visit Gila Hank Online at and make any changes under the “Account Information” tab today. Your new EAC Debit Card will be mailed to your current address on file with EAC. Therefore, it is critical that you verify your mailing address as soon as possible.

By updating your address with EAC, you will be automatically entered for a chance to win a $50 iTunes Gift Card.
